About SPIN

SPIN comprises of a group of well trained pediatric neuroradiologists with a broad clinical base. Dr. Ozgur Oztekin from Tepecik Education and Research Hospital, Izmir, Turkey, Dr. Kshitij “Kish” Mankad from the Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, Dr. Prasad Hanagandi from King Abdul Aziz Medical City, Riyadh, Dr. Ajay Taranath from the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide, Dr. Robert Goetti from the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, Dr. Pradeep Krishnan and Dr. Manohar Shroff from the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.

The SPIN group held its first Pediatric Neuroimaging course in Australia in September 2018. Apart from the consortium members who were delivering talks, there were local speakers as well. The result was a well-rounded course comprising talks by Neuroradiologists, Neurologists and Neuropathologists.

We are deeply obliged to Australia & New Zealand Society of Paediatric Radiology (ANZSPR) who allowed access to the member emails and thus helped provide publicity to the course.

The course was very well received by the attendees. At this stage, we are steadfastly on course to hold the course in 2019 in Brazil.

Irrespective of where we hold this event, the aim would be to deliver a clinically relevant top class course, one that comprises topics that we would all have liked at any course. The endeavour would be to retain this format in perpetuity.
